DARLA Z Inspiring Song and Music Video

Darla Z's uplifting song and music video inspires those dealing with domestic abuse.


Domestic violence is a global issue that affects millions of people around the world. Unfortunately, many cases go unreported due to social stigma or cultural norms against disclosure.

In the United States, approximately 30% of all domestic violence incidents are not reported to police authorities according to data from The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS). In England and Wales, only 18% were reported in 2019/2020 as estimated by The Crime Survey for England and Wales.

A UN study suggested 49% worldwide never report their cases or seek help while an Australian study revealed rge number to be at 80%. Canada saw 70% that never reported their cases. In Europe only 14%, Asian-Americans 8% and in South Africa 1 in 9 women who experienced abuse sought assistance from law enforcement agencies. In India one third of the female victims contacted police officers; In Mexico 62%; Spain 58%; Tanzania 95%; Philippines 50%; Turkey 93%; Russia 8 %; Kenya 65%.

These numbers demonstrate how widespread this problem is globally – with most instances going unnoticed or ignored altogether – making it difficult for governments and organizations to address these issues effectively without accurate information about what’s happening on ground level. It also highlights why it’s so important for survivors of domestic abuse to come forward if they feel safe enough do so – because when we don’t speak up about our experiences then nothing changes.

Our hope is this song will encourage those in an abusive situation to get help from the many available resources.
